About Caroline Ladd

Tor Farm is owned and managed by Brian and Caroline, both Somerset born and bred, who met when they were 16 and are still together after 41 years of marriage. Caroline concentrates mainly on the marketing and admin along with some cleaning and Brian maintains all the gardens, hot tubs, swimming pool and is the general handyman along with our son Ben, who deals with all the technically difficult things.

Tor Farm was originally a Dairy, Beef and Sheep farm, situated down a very quiet, peaceful country lane, with fantastic open views of the surrounding countryside, but owing to the economic climate we had to find another form of income as well as farming, so we started offering B & B in the main farm house in 1978 and continued to do so for 24years. This,as well as our farming has now ceased and we have diversified into offering 5 holiday properties for rental.

The most important thing in our lives are our family comprising of 1 Daughter and three Sons, all raised on the farm, who have now fled the nest and have produced 7 Grandchildren and still counting…….all of which live within one hour of Tor Farm, so will still enjoy close knit family ties.

Our hobbies are gardening, caravanning, walking, travelling, quilting and playing Bridge.

Although not a working farm any more we still have a few rare breed sheep, and we have converted the main house into a large holiday cottage, and where the farm yard once was has been landscaped into a fruit orchard and four luxury Eco log cabins erected, which we had architecturally designed, and were built by our Son Ben, and Son-in-Law Mathew, plus a few extra helpers, including ourselves.

We still live on site, so if there are every any problems we can sort them out immediately.

Our aim has always been to offer the highest quality, clean accommodation that we ourselves would feel comfortable to stay in and hopefully this is what we have achieved

Why Caroline Ladd chose Somerset

If you are looking for a property in the countryside, with contemporary decorations and private hot tub along with shared outdoor heated pool, then this is definitely the place.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and Quiet on a small site in a rural setting - with the benefit of a private Hot tub to massage away all those aches and pains!

Owner called my friend a liar.

  • 4 of 5

Great place, awesome location with stunning views and the lodges themselves were finished to a high-standard. The hot-tub is great and we were lucky that it was positioned with better views and more privacy than the other lodges. Overall we had a very relaxing time here save for 3 things.

Firstly the property was advertised to us as a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom rather than the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom it actually was. We were not offered any partial refund. The listing has since been changed, but the third bedroom was a deal-breaker in the planning stages so we felt a partial refund would've been fair as we would otherwise not have booked here.

The BBQ is not a BBQ. It is a pile of bricks on which you can place a disposable BBQ. This wouldn't be a problem, but the shops are very far away so we had to improvise given the hour. It would be better either to have built aa actual BBQ or not to advertise one.

Wasp Nest. There was a Wasp nest next to the Cottage, which made it very hard to relax in. Wasps were ever present and not shy about getting in your face, food, bedroom. In fairness the owners may not have been aware of this prior to our stay.

Clover Croft lodge stay Aug 20 to Aug 27 2010

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Clover Croft Lodge at Tor Farm, Somerset with my wife, two sons (aged 17 and 15) and daughter (aged 8) during August 2010.

The holiday was exceptional. The lodge was a major factor, It is situated, along with three other lodges, beside a main guest house with a small outdoor heated swimming pool, surrounded by fields with cows and sheep. A real escape, particularly for people not from the country. The hot tub at Clover Croft Lodge is private, being situated round the back of the lodge overlooking two open fields. This suited us perfectly and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub, either all five of us or me and the wife alone. It did not matter if it rained (which it did) - the water is kept at lovely teperature. The lodge itself is almost new and very comfortable with two bedrooms (master has a double bed and has en suite facilities). The second bedroom has twin beds and a desk. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs fixed to the wall as does the main living space. The main living space has a large leather sofa in a room that also contains the kitchen and a breakfast bar area with stools that can be raised and lowered (however, the stools were high and awkward or our 8 year old daughter to get on and off). There is no fireplace area as in some luxury lodges we have previously stayed in - a slight hiccup for us, although it would not deter us from returning (in fact we have booked to return next year and we do not usually visit the same place twice!). A hamper is provided on arrival. The hamper contains all the essentials we needed and was very welcome (only niggle was no soap in bathrooms so if you forget soap you are a little inconvenienced).

The surrounding area is another factor which makes the lodge at Tor Farm a great place to holiday. You can choose to 'chill' around the lodge some days, or visit places like Cheddar (with the gorge caves and experience (although we did not visit the caves - we ran out of time so intend to visit them next year). Other places we did visit include Weston Super Mare - a lovely sunny day when we visited - great if you like traditional beach holiday time. We also visited Wells with it's stunning cathedral and Bath with the very interesting Roman Baths. Wells Cathedral is free and the Roman Baths are reasonably priced. Longleat Safari Park and House is 45 minutes away (although we took the wrong road and got there after 70 minutes (road signage is poor until you get 5 miles away).

Fantastic break!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a friend and 5 girls ageing from 5 - 9 years, in late Aug, we had a lovely time, the accommadation was great all very clean and very comfortable. We all loved the hot tub, fantastic to sit in and watch the sun set. The girls enjoyed the swimming pool which we used loads as the sun was out! will be back if ever in the district.
